Business registration, courts to speed up

MPs passed a law that will speed up the registration of businesses in the state's central business registry from the current period of several months to five days.

On October 28, parliament also approved a series of other laws that were prepared by the Justice Ministry in order to speed up and make the work of the Slovak judiciary more effective. A new law foresees that about 600 higher court clerks would be employed at courts to take some of the administrative burden off of judges.
